I've been working on this for about a month now, I think at this rate it will probably take me about 4 months as I am doing it in quarters! when finished it will be 3 kittens in sepia tones, it's quite difficult as the shades are all very similar!

NEC Stash!!

I had such a fab day at the NEC and despite not feeling 100% I am so glad I went as buying all that stash made me feel a lot better! Thanks to all the girlies for a great time and all the lovely cards and pressies :) Here are some pics of the 'few' things I bought!

These are all the stamps I got

These are the bits I bought from 'Every craft's a Pound', I love the LLB papers which I never bought at the time they came out when they were £4.99, bargain!

These are just random bits and pieces, some new B plates as I was getting desperate, a gorgeous new Tree embossing folder and some storage, oh and a K&Co paper pad for £2!
As you can see, Silver is trying to claim my new flower embossing punches as her own as recently she's decided she'd like to do some crafting.

My 'messy' stuff! There was a stall called 'WOW' selling every colour of embossing powder you could imagine, of course I had to have the pink glittery one, the blue glittery one and the gold one! I have been wanting to try crackle accents for a while so picked up some of that too, along with some 'Silkies' which I can only describe like nail varnish! The lady on the stall was showing me some fab things you can do with them so I can't wait to try them out!

Card and card blanks - need I say more? Also some Acetate and some Nellies dies - as nowhere seemed to have the Nesties I wanted so I made do with those instead ;)

This is what I got in my £5 bargain bag from Create and Craft, the punch is lovely and I'll definitely use the papers, the Peel off folder is going to house all my christmas peel offs to make more room in my 'main' peel off folder! :)

a notebook

I decided to try something a little different this weekend and made my first notebook, I am pretty pleased with it for a first attempt! the papers are BG Euphoria and I've just stamped the word 'notes' and then glossy accented it to stand out a bit more. This is my craft buying notebook, I am also going to write in the colours and shades of everything I own such as inkpads, pens, etc so I dont end up buying anything twice (again....)!

Two challenges

At last it's Saturday! I didn't think last week would ever end! Here's one of today's makes, I've used a FF image, coloured with promarkers, and coloured around the edge of the oval with a glitter pen. The background is just the card blank embossed with the Dasies cuttlebug folder, then chalked with pink to bring out the dasies a bit more. I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

Mothers Day Order

Heres another mothers day card I have made for an order, I have used my mica shimmers (again!) and kept it fairly simple, just stamped the words and doodled faux-stitching around the edges. I would like to enter this into the challenge at
Creative Craft World - Mother's Day

CRAFT Challenge 40

This is the first card I have made using my new mica shimmer powders, by stamping with a versamark inkpad and dusting the powders over the image. I have used basic grey euphoria paper, personal impressions flower silhouette stamp and ribbon & gems from my stash. I would like to enter this into the current CRAFT challenge - Mothers Day/ Flowers

MSE Mothers Day card challenge

Heres my card for the current MSE theme which is mothers day. I've had this cross stitch kit finished for a while and was waiting for something suitable to use it on, so have made it into an easel card. I found the big brad in my stash and was quite chuffed at how well it went with the stitching :) Papers are from the FF Pink Parfait pad.
